Samsung Talking to BlackBerry About $7.5 Billion Buyout


Samsung Electronics recently offered to buy BlackBerry for as much as $7.5 billion, seeking its valuable patents as it battles Apple in the corporate market, according to a person familiar with the matter and documents seen by Reuters.

One has to wonder if there is anything but patents that is worth paying for at BlackBerry. They’re not even using their own devices internally if their recent tweeting from an iPhone is anything to go by.

Update: Samsung and BlackBerry both deny the report.
